Happy MLK Day! Quote it out!

Jealous of all the great MLK quotes blowing up your Facebook/Twitter feeds? No need to be! We have a nice compilation of MLK quotes right here for you to post and be all thoughtful about.

But in all reality, a lot of these quotes are so incredibly applicable outside of that specific context in which they were said/thought. In the age of blatant thievery, 99%’ers getting drowned out by people who don’t want to deal with blatant thievery, and being in the midst of needless wars, I would say we need to remember bravery and the challenge MLK put forth, the challenge to do what’s right.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream: Writings and Speeches That Changed the World

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

“Wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
